Abstract Cellular immunologic studies were performed on the leukemic cells of a 59 year old white man with monocytic leukemia. Morphologically, most circulating leukocytes were monocytes. They demonstrated Fc and C3 (third component of complement) receptors, phagocytized latex particles, showed In vitro cytoplasmic spreading and lysed antibody-coated chicken erythrocytes. Phagocytosis of, as well as rosetting with, C3-coated erythrocytes and very rapid cytoplasmic spreading suggested in vivo… CONTINUE READING
